His point about moral imagination is well taken. The post title is more an exercise in trolling for clicks. Too bad that formula wasn't enough for this site.

Yep. The title made me roll my eyes, but I actually liked the blog post quite a lot.

Aside from the moral imagination element, I still fail to see why Paul should be treated any differently than say, Pat Buchanan.

His twitter handle is Robert Wrighter ... cutesy but accurate. I really like Bob's expositional style of thinking aloud as well. He's a good interviewer. I hope that the coming changes highlight both aspects.

It's a sad freakin' world when it's considered ground breaking to see things from another culture's perspective. I don't think most on the right see this as an asset and not just something they are willing to overlook. But then again, if I put myself in their shoes (ala the great, intellectual, and noble thinker RP), it's great strategy towards ideologically distancing themselves from the Bush / neocon stigma.

Hey wait, is it still unamerican to criticize the president in a time of war? Just flashed back on some unpleasant history, sorry...
Snap back to reality, they didn't like Bush that much either... now.
